When times are stressful, we need something positive to engage in. What better activity than art and craft? Encourage your community to visit the IDEAS & LEARNING hub on Micador’s website for inspiration and activities for kids of all ages, and post pictures on social media of kid-specific kits and items.
In addition to kits, supplies and project ideas great for kids and families looking for educational and fun things to do during this time. Many parents will be homeschooling their children; what better way to celebrate Earth Day than educational projects with sustainably produced art supplies?
